Leadership Quotes

“Leadership is the ability to establish standards and manage a creative climate where people are self-motivated toward the mastery of long term constructive goals, in a participatory environment of mutual respect, compatible with personal values.” — Mike Vance

“The older I get the less I listen to what people say and the more I look at what they do.” — Andrew Carnegie

“Leadership is not so much about technique and methods as it is about opening the heart. Leadership is about inspiration—of oneself and of others. Great leadership is about human experiences, not processes. Leadership is not a formula or a program, it is a human activity that comes from the heart and considers the hearts of others. It is an attitude, not a routine.” — Lance Secretan, Industry Week, October 12, 1998

“If there is one thing a leader can do to connect with followers at a human, or better still a spiritual level, it is to become engaged with them fully, to share experiences and emotions, and to set aside the processes of leadership we have learned by rote.” — Lance Secretan, Industry Week, October 12, 1998

“There is no power on earth that can neutralize the influence of a high, simple, and useful life.” — Booker T. Washington

“He is greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.” — Henry Ward Beecher

“Max DePree popularized the idea that leadership is an art. So much of what a leader does cannot be objectively measured. To reduce leadership to a set of algorithms is to remove it from its context; to ignore the complexities, the contradictions, and the possibilities. Artists must deal with uncertainty, contradictions and diversity almost by definition. Leaders need to have this capacity.” — Michael McKinney

“Leadership is getting people to work for you when they are not obligated.” — Fred Smith
